The So Pop 2020 festival tour has been scrapped, due to the strict policies put in place by the governments of Australia and New Zealand to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Presented by Frontier Touring, Arena Touring and The Hits, So Pop was booked for six arena shows across both territories. Featuring a lineup with Pussycat Dolls, Steps, Jesse McCartney, Smash Mouth, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and more, the international trek was scheduled to kick off April 24 at Brisbane Entertainment Centre, and wrap May 3 at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch.
A statement issued by Frontier Touring on Thursday (March 18) confirmed the worst. “It is with a heavy heart that Frontier Touring and Arena Touring announce that So Pop 2020 will no longer be taking place in Australia and New Zealand this April and May,” the statement reads.
